Poem: A Change in Weather

A Change in Weather

The sky is suddenly dark,
and there is wind,
with the first cry of winter
hidden in it's bursts,
cutting and cold,
angry, dark and sad,
erasing in it's darkness
memories of summer,
and worse,
your heart
darkens with the sky,
forgetting that all weather
is fleeting.

winter's dark and cold and cloudy appeal to me. i live in a place with icy clear blue winter skies, and the sun and the cold just don't compute in my mind... excellent poem tom!

Hi Tom,

'The first cry of winter' seems to be all around. Let's hope that the darkness of the heart is fleeting.
